Muehl also said that it was likely he would offer Renert some kind of plea deal.
“I always make an offer in almost every case,” said Muehl, who said that he didn’t know what the offer would look like at this time. “It’s way too early to know.”
Muehl said that the Renert case was a high priority, and that he was waiting to receive reports on the Dec. 23 incident from both the Cooperstown Police Department and the Otsego County Sheriff’s Office. He also said that Carfagno, as a witness and victim, would be asked to testify, in the event of a trial.
Muehl said that it could be a while until the trial starts.
“I wouldn’t expect anything for at least six months,” he said.
